- 2 tbsp grapeseed oil

1. In a large pan, heat the oil and cook the red pepper flakes, zucchini, fennel, and onion until they start to caramelize (about seven minutes).
2. Stir in the salt, pepper, tarragon, dill, and white wine. Place the cod fillets on top, lower the heat to a simmer, cover the pan and cook gently for 10 minutes.
